Although the promo campaign for this series has essentially been nonexistent (has anyone seen or heard anything about this?), SEEDArts and Seattle Chamber Music Society is putting together a number of great music events in Columbia City this summer.
Through July, a number of free, classical concerts will be hosted in Columbia Park (next to the new PCC, behind library) every Monday evening. Here are the link to the Facebook event page (help spread the word), and here are the official details:
Music Under The Stars — Free
Bring a picnic, stretch out on the lawn, and enjoy a live audio broadcast of each of our Summer Festival concerts, provided directly to neighborhood parks by KING-FM. Each evening begins at 7:15pm with live chamber music performed by an outstanding student ensemble, and continues at 8:00pm with KING-FMs live broadcast, direct from Benaroya.
• Mondays: Columbia Park, 4701 Rainier Ave. S. in Columbia City

Grab a blanket, pack a picnic and enjoy an evening of great music in Columbia Park for…. for free!
These “Music Under the Stars” events have been a beloved Seattle tradition for over twenty years. And with the support of SEEDArts, we’ll now be in Columbia City for the first time!
Columbia Park is located at the corner of Rainier Ave S. and S. Alaska, between the Columbia City Library and the Rainier Valley Cultural Center.
